At the offices of Dr. Steven Warnock, we’re proud to offer a wide range of cosmetic surgery options for people of all ages and needs. Whether you need something like breast implants or breast lifts or are looking for other plastic surgeon services like a tummy tuck or some other form of body sculpting, we’re here to help.
Some people over the age of 40 worry that they’re too old for cosmetic procedures, but this simply isn’t the case – particularly when it comes to facial services. There are different procedures in this realm that might be best for people in various age ranges – the same regimen that would be great for someone in their 20s might not be as good for you if you’re 40-plus. With that in mind, here are a few procedures that are great for older adults.
Mini Lower Facelift
The mini lower facelift is a type of facelift meant to improve lines and various sagging skin areas in the lower face. This includes both sides of the mouth, the jowls, and can even extend down to the neck in some cases. This procedure is done using a natural tissue later, which is lifted under the skin to bring a younger, more refreshed look.
This procedure is great because it places no undue pressure on the overlying facial skin. This means that clients worried about a “windswept” look where people can tell you’ve been operated on can rest easy, as this doesn’t happen here.
When we say “midface,” we mean the part of the face including the tissue below the eyes – one of the most common operating areas. As we age, this area, which is more noticeable while smiling, flattens out and can cause some people to look tired and worn down.
The midface lift, then, elevates the cheek mound so you have a more prominent appearance. It’s great if you’ve experienced hollowing of the cheeks you want to get rid of.
The neck lift can be part of the lower facelift in many cases, but it can also be done on its own for patients that have sagging skin solely on the neck. It involves neck liposuction and tightening of the skin to get rid of fat deposits.
